I know so many people loved this book and I wont lie it's definitely a well written book I cannot take that away from it. Also the illustrations inside are absolutely gorgeous and just amazed me so much. However unfortunately I didn't particularly like this book all that much.
This book is split up as half installations and then half text. The first half of course was pretty easy to get through and didn't take me long at all as it was simply looking through pictures. However there were a few pages with writing on but not many. When I then got to the text which was almost 400 pages in I didn't feel like I wanted to read the story all that much. I read a few chapters and was kind of like mer okay this is okay but nothing great.
However, as I got probably just over halfway through the text I did start to like it a little more. Again it wasn't anything great or anything that completely blew me away but I still quite enjoyed it enough to give it the extra star as my original thoughts were to give it a 1 star.
If you want a childrens read to take your mind away from other more complex novels then maybe give this one a go. It may seem like a huge book but I read it within two days. Unfortunately it did nothing for me and the story didn't really give me any great 'feels'.
